Diet Mayhem

Weight Loss News, Reviews, Research Updates, and my own personal weight loss saga

If you aren't down right pissed off, you should be!

I'm sitting here absolutely FUMING!

It's gotten to be a given that diet and weight loss companies lie to us all with wild and reckless abandon.

I get that.

But what about "experts" in the field? What about doctors? How could THEY possibly be so ... well, down right totally and completely CLUELESS!

Or are they all just stupid, I can't decide.

I was thumbing through some old issue of some muscle magazine while in the doctors office (waiting of course), when I came upon an article about this woman who had a body fat percentage of something like 6%.

To give you an idea of how little body fat that is for a woman, there are anorexics with body fat percentages higher than that.

As I read the article, I thought for sure this woman had to be on some strange cabbage diet or something to have so little body fat.

Oh, but before I go on, let me say this ... she was GORGEOUS. She had toned muscles, a sparkle in her eyes that you CERTAINLY don't see in someone starving to death ... and she exuded energy even in the photographs.

Anyway, it turns out that her diet ... her "I need to lose fat for a photoshoot" diet ... consists of ...


Four Thousand Calories.

And it's more than that "normally".

Understand what this means.

This woman has developed a lifestyle that allows her to lose weight while seemingly GORGING HERSELF on a diet of 4,000 calories.

I was stunned.

As I kept reading, I learned why it was that she consumed so many calories.

How would you like to be able to eat like that? Imagine eating a diet of 4,000 calories and still losing weight like there was no tomorrow.

Obviously that isn't a starvation diet!

The article talked about why she had such an incredible diet.

No, there wasn't some goofball medical "problem" or anything like that.

It's what she was doing that made it so her body simply burned up A LOT of calories.

And I'm going to talk about it in tomorrow's posting.
